Call for submissions
Will you be at the Southern Demographic Association Conference
You are invited to submit abstracts for papers and/or sample papers
for the 2005 annual meeting of the Southern Demographic Associa-
tion (SDA). You also are invited to suggest topics for paper and pos-
ter sessions (see below). The deadline for submissions is June 01, 2005.
This yearÕs meeting will be held November 3–5 on the historic campus
of the University of Mississippi (For emerging details, please check
http://www.fsu.edu/$sda/). The SDA web pages include a ‘‘forms’’
page for submitting your proposed session topics and paper abstracts.
Presentations of research in both applied and academic demogra-
phy are welcome, as are related topics in economics, sociology, geo-
graphy, political science, public health, epidemiology, and psychology.
Though SDA is known for regional emphases and membership, we
encourage the membership and participation of individuals from any
region of the country or world. The structure of presentations is ﬂexi-
ble: potential contributors are encouraged to not only send abstracts
for individual research papers, but also for complete sessions, the-
matic sessions, panel discussions, software demonstrations, and more!
Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (850-644-8341) Woody Carl-
son, this yearÕs program chairperson, if you have any questions
regarding a potential submission. Presentations by (or co-authored
with) students are especially welcome; they can oﬀer a student a
signiﬁcant ﬁrst professional meeting experience. The 2005 meeting
promises to be a particularly hospitable forum for graduate student
participation, since costs of attendance will be lower than usual. SDA
also awards modest cash prizes to the best undergraduate and to the
best graduate student paper. Please send all proposals and abstracts
by June 01 to Woody Carlson.
The SDA web site will ask you for:
